Джозеф Вуд Крутч — американский писатель, критик.


„Надёжность существования зависит большей частью не от того, сколько ты имеешь, а от того, без чего ты можешь обойтись.“

„Если человек уничтожает нечто заменимое, созданное людьми, то его называют вандалом; если он уничтожает нечто незаменимое, созданное Богом, то его называют девелопером.“


„Самое серьёзное обвинение, которое можно выдвинуть против Новой Англии состоит не в пуританстве, а в феврале.“

„Счастье само является благодарностью.“

„The most serious charge which can be brought against New England is not Puritanism but February.“

„Cats seem to go along on the principle that it never does any harm to ask for what you want.“

„As machines get to be more and more like men, men will come to be more like machines.“

„Technology made large populations possible; large populations now make technology indispensable.“


„For a real glimpse into an almost vanished world, one should look... at a scorpion who so obviously has no business lingering into the twentieth century. He is not shaped like a spider and he has too many legs to be an insect. Plainly, he is a discontinued model--still running but very difficult, one imagines, to get spare parts for.“

„Cats are rather delicate creatures and they are a subject to a good many different ailments, but I have never heard of one who has suffered from insomnia.“

„Up up and quit your books' is not an adjuration commonly thought advisable in universities but there are occasions -- as for instance, when studying Wordsworth when it might be advisable.“

„It is not ignorance but knowledge which is the mother of wonder.“
